Unsure what jailbreak to use? Click here to find out.
If you would like, feel free to watch this tutorial in video form.
limera1n is a very simple jailbreak just like it’s predecessor blackra1n. It supports almost all devices making it a great jailbreak solution. As with all jailbreaks it is highly recommended that you connect your device to iTunes and let it sync to back up all of your data first. You should not lose any data in the jailbreak but there’s always a chance that something could go wrong so it’s a good idea to be safe.
Important note: Your iTunes version must be at 10, not at 10.1 or above.
To begin with you will need to download limera1n which is available for both Windows and Mac.
Open limera1n and then connect your device. If iTunes appears close it and then click ‘make it ra1n’.
Now at this point you will need to hold the Home and Sleep buttons together until limera1n prompts you to release the Sleep button and continue holding the Home button.
As soon as limera1n says you are in DFU mode you are all done, just give it a few moments. After the limera1n logo disappears hold the Sleep button for a few seconds to boot your device.
Once your device is on everything should be the same except for the addition of a single new application called limera1n.
Open it and then you should find the option to install Cydia. Select it and then press Install.
After it is done your device should reboot and that’s it, you’re all done. Congratulations, you are now jailbroken!
